For 2011, the foundation's board of trustees set a $173,000 fundraising goal and a $177,000 grantmaking goal. Recently the foundation awarded a $5,000 disaster relief grant to the World Council of Credit Unions for the Disaster Relief Fund for Australia to provide immediate relief to Australian credit union staff and members affected by torrential rains, described as the worst in Australian history.
